ABC's of ME!


B. BED SIZE: Double

C. CHORE YOU HATE: Cleaning bathrooms

D. DOG'S NAME: Corduroy... he's a golden so its perfect for him!

E. ESSENTIAL "START THE DAY!" ITEM: Taking a shower and having some form of caffeine . I wish I was one of those people that could go days without washing their hair and just use dry shampoo but unfortunately I have to wash mine everyday. 

F. FAVORITE COLOR: Close tie between turquoise or any shade or purple

G. GOLD OR SILVER: Right now I would have to say gold. I have a gold watch that I love and also love when clothes or accessories have gold details rather than silver.

H. HEIGHT: 5'2, in other words... short

I: INSTRUMENTS YOU PLAY: When I was in elementary school I played the Clarinet. It was not pretty and have yet to pick up an instrument since.

J. JOB: Currently and intern at a Children's Hospital working with the Child Life Team. I will be officially graduating in December where I will have a degree in Child Life!

K. KIDS: No children, love them to death but no right now.

L. LIVING ARRANGEMENTS: I currently live with 3 amazing girls :)

M. MOM'S NAME: Carrie

N. NICKNAME: Most of my friends call me Em

O. OVERNIGHT HOSPITAL STAY: The summer before my junior year I was in a car accident and broke my collarbone. They kept my overnight in the hospital just to keep a close eye on me!

P. PET PEEVE: People with no manners. I say please and thank you more than I say any other words.

Q. QUOTE FROM A MOVIE: Even if I'm not going through a breakup or hard time this will forever be my favorite movie quote, as well as one of my favorite movies:

I understand feeling as small and as insignificant as humanly possible. And how it can actually ache in places you didn't know you had inside you. And it doesn't matter how many new haircuts you get, or gyms you join, or how many glasses of chardonnay you drink with your girlfriends... you still go to bed every night going over every detail and wonder what you did wrong or how you could have misunderstood. And how in the hell for that brief moment you could think that you were that happy. And sometimes you can even convince yourself that he'll see the light and show up at your door. And after all that, however long all that may be, you'll go somewhere new. And you'll meet people who make you feel worthwhile again. And little pieces of your soul will finally come back. And all that fuzzy stuff, those years of your life that you wasted, that will eventually begin to fade.


S. SIBLINGS: I am sad to say that I am an only child. Every year for Christmas I would beg for a little brother or sister but no such luck.

T. TIME YOU WAKE UP: Monday-Friday: between 5-6 Saturday and Sunday- normally around 8 or 9

U. UNDERWEAR: Victoria Secret

V. VEGGIE YOU DISLIKE: Being a vegetarian I pretty much like all veggies!

W. WAYS/REASONS YOU ARE LATE: I hate to be rushed and often like to take my time getting ready. I am also one of those people who tries on at least 4 different outfits before I decide what I'm going to wear

X. XRAYS YOU'VE HAD: Collarbone and finger. When I was little I dropped a bowling ball on my finger and broke it. I've not been a huge bowler since.

Y. YUMMY FOOD YOU MAKE: I'm an eggcellent omelet maker and I also make a mean batch of funfetti cupcakes.

Z. ZOO ANIMALS YOU LIKE: I really like all the animals at the zoo but I love seeing the elephants and giraffes

Thoughts of Thursday!

Thoughts of Thursday...

Horray Horray its almsot Friday! I dont know about anyone else but this week is kicking my butt and I'm totally looking forward to tomorrow! However my weekend plans are still very much up in the air. After being out of town last weekend and having a wedding next weekend I was really looking forward to just relaxing and staying in town this weekend. This weekend happens to be ECU's homecoming and while I love my Pirates and would love to see my friends... I am just not sure I am up for a weekend of going out and being exhausted on Monday.  D. also mentioned that we could go to Charleston for the weekend. Who turns down a weekend in Charleston?...possibly this girl. Am I being a boring old lady?

Today at work was our second day on Haunted Theatre and I was interviewed by the news! It was very exciting to watch myself on the 5'o clock news!

I am feeling a shopping craving coming on and am trying to hold out for as long as possible but it didn't help getting an email today from the Banana Republic Factory store telling me almost everything is up to 70% off.

Im currently watching the Rachel Zoe show... obsessed. Im convinced her baby is going to be the most stylish baby ever.

Im very excited about Greys tonight! Hoping I can catch on since I wasn't paying attention for last week's episode due to watching Hocus Pocus.

Hope everyone had a great Thursday!

What I'm Loving Wednesday- Bedroom Edition!

When I eventually have a house of my own the one room I can not wait to decorate is my bedroom. Love the kitchen, love the living room, but the bedroom is the one place you can go to lay down, relax, and have a little  "you" time.  

Here are a couple of bedroom ideas I absolutely love. 

Hope everyone has had a great Wednesday! 

Also be sure to check out Emily's great Marley Lilly scarf giveaway!

A lot more technical difficulties than expected!

I'm sure y'all thought I had up and left my blog but I promise I have a good excuse! About a month ago my roommates cat knocked over a glass of water on my laptop... I know, it sucks. Well the laptop still worked just not as efficiently. Unfortunately when I returned from my amazing weekend at home my laptop would not turn on and has yet to do other words I think its finally crashed. As you can see this miss-hap has made posting a little difficult! I am so dreading getting another laptop and was trying to hold out until christmas but that is no longer an option. I had a Macbook and am afraid I have turned into a bit of a Mac snob and really want another.

Anyway... here are some updates while I have been gone!

Purchased a GREAT satchel from F21 along with two gold chain bracelets 

Packed my bags and headed home to Maryland!

Tailgated with friends for the ECU vs. Navy game.

Side note: I dont know if anyone is a Pirate fan or watched this game but holy moly... it was amazing! What a great win for the Pirates!

Got to spend time with my amazing family and celebrated my moms 50th birthday!

So far this week at work I have been working on the Haunted Theatre- a haunted house in the hospital that is set up so that patients scare the doctors and nurses. It is turning out great!

As for posting... I will try and post just as regularly as possible. Hope everyone is having a great week so far and is getting ready for Halloween!

Technical difficulties

Hey y'all I'm so sorry for being the worst blogger ever! I went home for the weekend and my parents computer won't load blogger all the way! Hope everyone had a great weekend and I promise I'll have a great post later!

What I'm Loving Wednesdays

Hey Yall, hope everyone is having a great week so far! Today I will be participating in What I'm Loving Wednesday!

The amazing dinner I made last night that consisted of pasta, zucchini, onions, garlic, shallots, and salmon!
I have been dying for a nude/beige color blazer and this one is absolutely fabulous

LC's effortless fall style. 

I need this taped inside my planner.

Cheetah TOMS?! perfect

Theres a good possibility I would never leave this shower

Wallpaper from Anthropologie 

Essie Fall Polishes

If these frye boots magically appeared in my closet I would a-ok with it.

Leather wrap bracelets 

That just 3 days away from now I'l be cheering on my Pirates in my hometown against Navy!

Hope everyone had a great day!

Routines and Tunes for Tuesday

Last night I go to bed later than I normally do, completely OK in my book seeing as how I was up later enjoying a wine tasting with my roommates. What better way to celebrate the end of Monday. However when I woke up this morning I had a hard time getting myself together and out the door. I felt like my routine was thrown off and I wasn't sure where to being getting ready or end. Does everyone have a routine they follow in the morning or is it just whatever is fast enough to get out the door?

My routine includes:
-Wake up at latest 5:25 a.m.
-Brush teeth
-Make up
-Get dressed
-Check emails if time
-Pack lunch
-Leave house at 6:20 a.m

Sometimes if I'm lucky I have time to make coffee. I also am blessed that I can wear scrubs to work, which cuts out any time I would normally have to decide what to wear that day. What does your morning routine consist of?

Being that its Tuesday and sometimes more of a struggle than Monday I decided to include a few songs I'm loving right now. 

Hope everyone has a great Tuesday! Almost halfway through the week!

We Meet Again Monday

Happy Monday everyone! I hope everyone had a great and relaxing Sunday! I spent my Sunday doing a few great things...

A trip to Ulta where I got these few items. I have never tried any of these products but am anxious to see how they work!

Enjoyed a few pumpkin ales while sitting outside watching the Panthers game with D. I love pumpkin ales this time of year and this one we tried was amazing! I definitely recommend it if you are looking to try something new!

D. and I also made homemade pizza for dinner! It was amazing.

We also finally carved pumpkins! D is a huge Clemson fan so chose to do the paw. 

Ulta, pumpkin ale, pizza, and pumpkins... sounds like a great Sunday to me! Hope everyone has a great start to the week!

Thoughts for Sunday

This morning I was up early and out the door for a run! Yes thats right I said it...a run. I used to run all the time and I have sadly fallen out of it but definitely excited to get back into it!

You know you had a good run when your ankles are covered in grass.

After my run I made myself a yummy breakfast- eggs, cheese, tomatoes and a piece of veggie bacon

I may have not mentioned yet that I am a vegetarian, well I guess technically I am a pescetarian because I do eat seafood from time to time. Not eating meat is something I personally decided to do for myself but I absolutely have no problem with those who do eat meat! I do miss the taste of a big cheeseburger from time to time. 

Also on my agenda today includes making this craft for my moms 50th!

I picked up a great big frame from TJ Maxx and my roommate is being kind enough to let me use some of her burlap! I know I'll be making something else for my mom I'm just not sure what that other craft will be yet!

On Sundays I try to plan out my meals for the week, this is what I'm thinking this week so far...

Definitely making this dish again, it was amazing! My version included rice, beefless beef, black beans, tomatoes, zucchini, shallots, onions, and garlic!

I've been searching for the next fall soup to make in my crock pot and this sounds perfect for this week!

These are super east to make and awesome to grab in the morning when I'm heading to work! I made them a few weeks ago and my version included eggs, spinach, and feta cheese.

I also have been craving a good ol egg salad sandwich and promised D. I would make him extra to have for the week. 

Hope everyone had a great relaxing Sunday!

Struggling Saturday

Hey Yall, I'm so sorry for my absence yesterday! I hope everyone had a great Friday and is having a great weekend!

Last night D. and I headed to Raleigh to meet up with some friends of mine! We had so much fun, maybe a little too much judging from how we both felt this morning. This was actually the first time D. had met some of my friends so that was very exciting! Today included driving back to town and taking a long nap. 

For this post I have decided to share the makeup products I use! Normally when I go to work I dont wear a lot of makeup so this is the makeup I use when I go out!

This is a great foundation! It last all night and has great coverage without being too thick.

I LOVE this powder! It takes away shine and helps everything stay in place

I'm currently using Covergirl eyeliner in navy blue. Sometimes I switch it up and use liquid black but I have been liking the navy blue lately.

This is a great mascara that I randomly picked up at Target one day but I have loved it! It doesn't make my eyelashes clump at all.

I love MAC bronzer and have been addicted to this product forever. 

Thats all of them! Hope everyone has a great Saturday night!

Thankful Thursday...

Just a warning in advance that I am super tired so this post may not exactly be the greatest! Being that today is Thursday I will continue the spirit of last thursday and talk about what I am thankful for!


A week from tomorrow I will be flying home to surprise my wonderful momma for her 50th!

My dad booked my flight today for my cousins wedding in November... I can not wait!

Getting off work at 1:00 today, the good part of going in at 7:00

Driving to Raleigh with D. tomorrow to meet up with some friends from Greenville!

D. letting me have remote control privileges and watching Greys while he patiently read his book next to me.

Finally going to get pumpkins this weekend!

Again I'm extremely sorry for the short post but I am beyond tired and have to be at work at 6:30 tomorrow! Hope everyone had a great Thursday!

Halfway through the week & Pinteresting Wednesday

Woo hoo we're halfway through the week! This week could be dragging on slower! I am especially tired today and pretty sure I will be asleep before 9 and can not wait. I did look around after work today for a cute fall dress for tomorrow but was bummed to not find a thing! Also, anyone else completely fallen off their workout wagon? I need to desperately find motivation to get to the gym again! If anyone has any good motivation tips let me know! For todays post I decided to link up with TheVintageApple for Pinteresting Wednesday!

I am dying for a pair of cheetah flats for fall!


I'm going pumpkin picking this weekend and cant wait to try this out!

love the look of wrap watches!

I foresee this craft happening in my near future

D. got me a pallet and I can't wait to decide what craft I'm going to do!

Call me 5 years old but I never let my feet hang off the bed

Van Morrison knows everything.

I hope everyone had a great Wednesday!

A Case Of The Tuesdays..

Is it just me that seems to think Tuesdays are wayyy worse than Mondays? I realize it is one day closer to Friday but my goodness I could have done without this day. Today I had to give an inservice to all of my supervisors at my internship and let me just did not go as well as I had planned. I have never been a big public speaker but for some reason today I just could not get my thoughts and words to match up just right. After talking to my mom and a few friends I did feel better but I can't wait to wake to a new day tomorrow!

Tonight I'm going to see this little flick with D. 

Truth be told I'm not a huge Brad lover...ever since he left Jen I just haven't been able to look at him the same. I mean really how could you not want to be with this woman?!

Another reason I'm looking forward to tomorrow is I get to do a little shopping! On Thursday I am going to an alumni happy hour with D, anyone have any ideas on what to wear to something like this? When I asked D, he said wear whatever... typical response.  I was thinking a cute fall dress and maybe some boots? Heres a few dresses I liked but who knows what I'll find in the stores!

Also don't forget to check out Emily's giveaway that ends at midnight tonight!
Hope everyone has a great day tomorrow!
